Litfuse Group: "Every Perfect Gift" by Dorothy Love Book Review

Book 3 in Dorothy Love’s Hickory Ridge Romance series.
Ethan and Sophie long to share a future together. But the secrets they’re not sharing could tear them apart.
Sophie Caldwell has returned to Hickory Ridge, Tennessee, after years away. Despite the heartaches of her childhood, Sophie is determined to make a home, and a name, for herself in the growing town. A gifted writer, she plans to resurrect the local newspaper that so enchanted her as a girl.
Ethan Heyward’s idyllic childhood was shattered by a tragedy he has spent years trying to forget. An accomplished businessman and architect, he has built a majestic resort in the mountains above Hickory Ridge, drawing wealthy tourists from all over the country.
When Sophie interviews Ethan for the paper, he is impressed with her intelligence and astounded by her beauty. She’s equally intrigued but fears he will reject her if he learns about her shadowed past. Just as she summons the courage to tell him, Ethan’s own past unexpectedly and violently catches up with him, threatening not only his life but their budding romance.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Ready for a sweet, Christian read?  This is definitely it!  Dorothy Love is one of those authors you can always count on to deliver quality romances where the characters quietly rely on God--or at least learn to rely on Him--and the romance never comes across as sappy.  She is a skilled writer, and you will always find the story uplifting and completely appropriate.

In this story, several issues are covered that are not often covered in Christian historical romances.  She covers women's issues, mixed race. prejudice, and the poor, to name a few.  She doesn't mince words, and the romance is exactly as it should be.  There is never any doubt about how the story will end, but she does add a bumps along the way that make it quite entertaining.  This is a book that is delightful to read!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
